I need to let our two dogs be fit and running again for this year, 2018.

I miss running with my two dogs, Ikkyo and Recca who are both Siberian Huskies.

I miss going out with them and I feel that they miss the running so much most especially Ikkyo who was my running buddy since 2013. Recca was just new into running since 2016.

Next month, I will make it a point to run with them. They had a short distance run last December 2017 but it was not enough for them to be satisfied. Next month, onwards, I will be running at least once or twice in a month with them along with my wife and son so that it will be a family bonding already.

Why I Chose To Have A Firefly

This is my personal opinion, views, and reviews on the Firefly Magnum Aurii mobile phone.

As the year ends, allow me to do another personal post.

I’m a tightwad when it comes to mobile phones. I go for usefulness instead of style. Durability over cuteness and sleekness.

I also do not use the camera often. I am not fond of using the camera on phones except for emergency and family reasons. The one phone that I used to love before because of its camera features is my old Xperia mini-10 and for that, I am a proud owner and contented owner of a Sony Xperia phone. I rarely even use radio and sounds for passing by time.

Plus if I lost it, no regrets since its only a few thousand pesos only.

I can buy phones with brands such as Samsung, Oppo, or even a Huawei phone but I just don’t want to.

Things have changed. There is a rapid growth of technology. Technology moves faster, even bitcoins are moving upwards, although volatile in its nature. With this succession in technology, I need to be updated and upgraded too. Hence, I bought a Firefly Magnum Aurii mobile phone last 20 October 2017 via an online store and the package arrived last 26 October 2017. I should have posted this last 26 December 2017, which was also the birthday of my Mom, for the two months of testing and usage of my Firefly Aurii Magnum but opted to postpone until my last blog post for the year 2017 which is today, 28 December 2017.

This will be put to test when we go to Southeast Asian countries next year. I am currently and constantly exploiting its capabilities via burn-in tests by installing games such as Ingress, Asphalt, Cover Fire, Fallout Shelter, Guns of Glory, Greed City, and Chess. I even installed bitcoin miner, bitcoins apps, and even an Ethereum miner to maximize its potential, internet usage, and hardware capabilities. As of last week, I uninstalled the Ethereum miner since it was a scam miner app which does not pay. The bitcoin miner on my Nokia Lumia is even better because I already received two payouts of Satoshis.

So far, as a gamer, I have successfully installed several mobile games which ran smoothly in my Firefly Magnum Aurii.

The number of times dropped:

  1. November 20, 2017
  2. November 23, 2017
  3. December 24, 2017
  4. December 26, 2017

Games installed:

  1. Ingress
  2. Asphalt 8
  3. Greed City
  4. Chess dot com
  5. Cover Fire
  6. Guns of Glory
  7. Fallout Shelter
  8. Legacy of Discord: Furious Wings

Games installed but not compatible:

  1. Age of Empires: Castle Siege – not compatible
  2. Pokemon Go – not compatible

My final verdict(s), buy this phone for its battery and screen size plus its bloatware-less status and affordable price. Do not buy this phone if you are a Pokemon Go gamer and if you want to have a 4G-capable mobile phone already.

After a long time

this is a personal post…

I and my mother traveled to our place in Baguio, amidst the traffic and fully-booked Joybus bus stations in Pasay and Cubao, we were able to buy a ticket in Doroteo Jose courtesy of the helpful call of the guy in the Pasay Joybus terminal. He called that we are accommodated for a 5PM bus at Doroteo Jose. He did not hesitate in calling for a reservation which is really an act of kindness. I was also able to buy supplies for our business, too.
